Blue Moncenisio Cheese 2,5Kg
Blu del Moncenisio is produced on the plateau of Moncenisio, the southern side of Colle del Frejus and the plateau of Novalese. It is therefore born at the border with France and the French influence is also perceived in the name "bleu", which recalls the "bleu" of the other side of the Alps.
Blu del Moncenisio is produced with pasteurized cow's milk and precisely from two successive milkings, the first of which is partially skimmed by affioramento.
The mass obtained from the first milking is placed in linen cloths and left to drain and rest for 3-4 days. At this point, as for all blue cheeses, it is mixed and kneaded with a second fresh curd, so that the two masses do not unite homogeneously (the first curd, in fact, has a higher acidity than the fresh one) and create, inside the paste, cracks ready to host the noble molds, characteristic of all blue cheeses.

When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti began aging Gorgonzola in 1876, his brilliant intuition was the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. The rest is simply history!
Over the years, the Guffanti family has specialized in the selection, seasoning and refinement of the best Italian and international dairy products: the experience gained with Gorgonzola, which remains the trademark, has gradually been transferred to all other types of cheese. After 5 generations, the attention to the artisan quality of the cheese product and the passion for an accurate refinement continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated to this day as one of the best refiners in the world.
